(Note: click «  » for prev/next pages)

The role of coaches in the 21st century is changing significantly; coaches need to be part activists, part councillors and part change agents. When reading The Future of Coaching, reflect on how Hetty’s vision for coaching has matured over decades of mastery. And through these thought provoking essays you will recognise the talent and insight Hetty has for this business-critical profession. Personally, Hetty has been a trusted advisor, provocateur and compass and I have benefited greatly from her wisdom.

This book is a beautiful collection of ‘wisdom’ essays that sheds new light on the coaching profession. It challenges coaches to step up to the real challenges facing leaders today and work as thinking partners to engage fully with leaders in the messy VUCA world in which we all struggle. Hetty Einzig has drawn on deep personal experience and a real breadth of theory to produce a must-have book for coaches who want to make a real difference.

These times are having a profound effect upon the wellbeing of employees across all sectors. This is played out in the rising incidence of depression and anxiety in the workplace. Coaching and the role of coaches have become even more critical. People need someone to speak to as they learn to become more resourceful in the world we confront today. More coaches need to view wellbeing as a key driver of performance and thus develop their skills and knowledge to be able to coach for enhancing the energy of employees and line managers, not just the traditional approach of addressing skills, knowledge and behaviours. Hetty Einzig’s book is a wonderful illustration of the changing role coaches can and must play.
